The Wheeler Institute is inspired by the purpose and passion of our students, who are focused on applying innovative thinking in the area of business for development. We seek collaborations with student clubs that aim to reshape the way we think about business. The initiatives that we support allow students to apply their business skills and knowledge in complex real-world environments, whilst creating a positive and sustainable impact for local organisations and communities.
In conversation with Jürgen Rigterink, EBRD
We are proud to sponsor and support the upcoming In conversation with Jürgen Rigterink, EBRD event moderated by Vania Stavrakeva, Assistant Professor of Economcs at LBS, and hosted by Elias Papaioannou, Professor of Economics at LBS and Co-Academic Director of the Wheeler Institute for Business and Development.
Emerging and frontier markets across the globe are presenting new challenges that require integrated and multifaceted solutions supported by the international community. The question remains: “What does it take to build a strong and resilient economy in these markets?” The answer is not easily articulated, but it requires policy advice and dialogue, sustainable finance, and significant political will.
London Business School’s Social Impact Club, Finance Club, and the Wheeler Institute for Business and Development are welcoming Jürgen Rigterink, the First Vice President of the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD), for a thought-provoking discussion with Vania Stavrakeva, Assistant Professor of Economics on how the EBRD invests in economies where it can make the most impact.
Date: Wednesday 24 May 2023, 19.00 – 20.30 BST
Location: Sammy Ofer Centre, London Business School
